About

Hi, I’m Ian.

I’m a software engineer living in Cardiff, UK. I run a small software development company, Nifty Digits Ltd which specialises in Python and Javascript.

Since 2012, I’ve worked on tools for companies such as the Office for National Statistics, BBC, Aardman Features and Clothcat Animation.

Here I publish my thoughts on anything that takes my fancy. Mostly that concerns web development and running a number of side projects such as availability.is and Fair & Bare.

For 4 years of my life, I worked on my PhD at Cardiff University, before passing my viva in 2009. Probably the most valuable skills I learnt whilst doing so were about myself, rather than anything written in my final thesis.
